|4 white lights in a v-shape flying above the clouds across the sky in about 5 seconds.
This evening, Saturday, October 27, 2007 at 7:48 Pacific Time, I saw 4 lights, shaped in a tight V-shape (2 on each side), fly across the sky from North to South almost directly over me; but passing slightly east of my location. I was in a dark area near the corner of Convoy and Armour Streets in San Diego, California. This area is directly under the flight path of Montgomery Field and a few miles south of Miramar Marine Air Station. I have lived around the Miramar Marine Air Station for 20 years in several locations. I have seen just about every possible plane and plane formation flying over me in this area and I have never seen anything like this.
Each light was about the 3 or 4 times the size of a normal star (so they were very obvious). A plane close enough to have a light that large would be very loud; but there was no sound. The distance between each light was about the same as each light (making it seem like all 4 lights were linked) but I could not see anything in-between the lights. This was a tight formation. This V-shape of lights traveled from north to south across two-thirds of the sky in about 5 seconds (5 seconds is not a quick glance---I watched it clearly).
Tonight, at 7:48 pm, there was about 10 to 20 percent of wispy cloud cover and these lights were above the clouds; but I do not know how high above the clouds. I could see the lights through the clouds as they passed over the clouds.
The quality of the lights needs mentioning. The lights were solid and bright; but not a bright light like a star or blinking plane light. These lights were different, maybe softer. These lights did not blink. I guess the best description of these lights would be a slightly dim, off-white. I say they were a V-shape; but the open end would be wider than a typical V.
